Whilst the regional Business Link advisory service will close on the 25 November 2011, the Business Link website is being significantly enhanced and will provide improved, comprehensive support to businesses. New online services will be launched in November.
If you are an established business we will be offering you a growth and improvement service which includes tools to help you diagnose and solve business problems, a business support finder, tutorials and video case studies, information on events in your area and links to business discussions and other services.
In last month’s newsletter we provided details of new services for those looking to start a business. A whole new area of the Business Link website will provide a comprehensive start up service including online training and a starting up task list to guide people through the process. We have been showcasing this to Local Enterprise Partnerships and to colleagues in the National Enterprise Network. The feedback has been very positive so far and we hope to be able to give you a sneak preview next month!
